Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Other than the Royal Rumble, I haven't seen any matches that could be classed as early MOTYC's. I thought that Hardy vs. Michaels; Michaels vs. Kennedy III; and Hardy vs. Umaga were all great, but we'll see better in the WWE. None of those matches would have been any higher than a ***3/4 in my book.

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Besides the last post is there been any other MOTYCs since mid febraury?


"I pledge allegiance... to the greatness
Of the conqueror who stands before me
And to his dominance; For which I stand
One Cenation; Under John
Now divisible
With no more hustle, loyalty or respect for all!"

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Takeshi Morishima NOAH 3/2 ****1/2 (Might be overating it but I obviously loved it. Had that "big match feel" that very few matches have now a days. My MOTY so far.)

The Briscoes vs. Naomichi Marufuji & Takashi Sugiura NOAH 3/2 ****

Tanahashi & Mutoh vs. Kawada & Kea AJPW 3/1 ***3/4 (not **** but I've seen some people call it MOTY so far so I thought I'd throw in the rating.)

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Misawa-Morishima 2/3/08 - feels like ****1/4 is a bit low, but ****1/2 might be a bit much. not sure.

Felt like a really big deal, crowd was red hot, Shima did a suicida...really good match

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

I'd give Shima/Misawa a **** 1/4 myself as well and is my current MOTYC. But given I've seen like 4 matches from 2008 so far thats not saying much.

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Misawa was so good in this match. He did everything to make Morishima look fantastic.

Very simple story telling done very well. Great match.

People need to be checking out the Kings Of Wrestling vs Taue/Izu from this show too. Really fun and I preferred it to the Marufuji/Sug tag.

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Kings vs Taue/Izu was tons of fun tbh, but nothing too special. They weren't going for anything more anyway really, just a light comedy match. Nothing wrong with that
